Summer and Smoke; Final White Script, James Poe, November 15, 1960
Wallis-Paramount-Hazen, (Hollywood) 1960 - 4to, 137pp typescript, with additional inserted pages. Original shooting script from the Paramount film adaptation of Williams's 1948 play. This is an intermediate state, with newer sections inserted on blue paper. There were subsequent revisions to the script and while we have been unable to compare with other versions, it is safe to say that there are discrepancies. Three names have been inked onto the title leaf, including that of the film's star Laurence Harvey, though it does not appear to be Harvey's hand. The other two names are of casting directors Eddie Morse and Bill Greenwald (crossed out), both longtime behind-the-scenes figures in numerous films, and neither of whom is credited with invovlement in this particular production. Summer and Smoke was released in 1961, directed by Peter Glenville from the script by James Poe and Meade Roberts -- both of whom worked with Williams on other adaptations as well, such as Cat on a Hot Tim Roof and The Rose Tattoo. The film received four Oscar nominations, including two in acting categories for Geraldine Page and Una Merkel. Few pencil marks, as from a member of production crew; names written on title leaf; genrally used, but fresh, brad-bound through three punch-holes, in plain black buckram spring binder.
